Traditional family households shrink to new low in Canada

OTTAWA, August 2, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — According to data released by Statistics Canada today, the traditional family in Canada has reached an all-time low. The most common type of household is now composed of a single person living alone.

These findings are from the third series of data in the 2016 Census. This series focuses on families, households, marital status, and language.

“The data provide a portrait of a country where diverse living arrangements have replaced the family models of the past,” said the governmental agency.
